Subject: Dated, Informative and Informative because it's Dated
A general overview of chronic fatigue syndrome, HIV/AIDS, and Breast Cancer that is directed at lesbian women. The information is somewhat dated, but the blurred breast self-examinations, lack of information pertaining to dental-dams and condom use, and the attitudes of medical professionals towards lesbian women and women in general are interesting historically. The statistics are also interesting as they are used in a scare-tactic fashion aimed at encouraging women to see doctors for tests and practice safe sex. The information would have been useful to all women at the time; this video's focus on lesbians likely limited it's audience.
